California GOP violated campaign finance rules, watchdog says

Finance Ministry warns wilful defaulter again, asks banks to nail them

He said banks have been advised to cut down their net non-performing assets (NPAs) and so wilful defaulters must be dealt as firmly, correctly and expeditiously as possible. Takru had earlier this month gave a stern warning to wilful defaulters and told them that they should be prepared to cede management control of their companies as they are putting public’s money at stake.
